I think Chris has clarified this for you in his response.  Being a long
time reader of this list and witnessing the volume of email about the
current OpenSSH package (I'm not implying any problem with Corinna's
work on this!), I agree with Chris's opinion that it is unlikely to help
if there is yet another Cygwin package with an 'ssh' implementation as
part of it.  To me, at least, that's what makes 'ssh' so special.
